Women make 77¢ to every dollar a man makes for the same job per week, that’s the false statement that miss leaded politicians and that many feminist try to state as fact to the masses without telling the whole truth. In my opinion the wage gap is used to make the need of feminism stronger by making people think that there is still a problem with equal pay due to gender. The wage gap is the idea that if a man and a woman were hired for the same position, the women would make 23% less than the man per week. The entirety of the argument has been proven to be a lie time after time again, but many feminists continue to advertise and protest it as fact, but they never seem to teach the full truth behind it.
Frank Shabata is a man being cheated on, and if he ever finds out, his rage will be like that of a stone cold child killer, King Herod who killed thousands of innocents. King Herod was a man who killed many innocent children and Cather compared Frank Shabata to Herod if he would have ever found out about his wife and Emil Bergson’s secret love. Willa Cather uses allusions in her book, O Pioneers!. In the novel reference she compared Frank to Herod the Great. That will be my first paragraph.
Figures suggest that the gender pay gap will have an impact on women later on in life. In 1968 women were paid 87% of men’s wages, so on the 7th of June 1968 women went on strike for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks of strike the pay gap decreased and women now earn 92% of men’s wages. In 2012, it was recorded that 64% of the lowest paid workers were women and that each man earnt $6412.89 more than women per year and currently the average woman working full time received 84.3% of men’s pay. Due to the gender pay gap men currently earn considerably more money than women each year, women effectively stop earning money by early November each year.
Women have always had to fight for equal rights from the beginning of the Revolutionary War to present day. Although, women have the right to vote, it doesn’t guarantee women are treated equally. Women are still being paid less than men; “full-time working women earn just 78 cents for every dollar a man earns” ("Did You Know That Women Are Still Paid Less Than Men?"). In the 1960s, women were expected to get married and stay at home taking care of the children. At the time period, jobs for women were limited, “38 percent of American women who worked in 1960 were largely limited to jobs as teacher, nurse, or secretary” ("The 1960s-70s American Feminist Movement”).
But on August 26,1920, the 19th amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, giving women the right to cast a vote. The fight for women was a long difficult journey.

The acceptance rate of women into schools wasn’t very high in the 1970’s. Most medical and law schools would limit the amount of women admitted to at most fifteen or fewer per school (Report). Many colleges and universities had higher standards for women in comparison to men. Women were required to have higher test scores and better grades than men in order to receive admission, as for men, all applicants got accepted. Universities in Virginia rejected about 21,000 women, but no men (The Real).

According to the 2012 census, white women working full time only earn 77 cents for every dollar that men earn, it seems this is where the data for the meme comes from. In 2015 women are still being paid less than men for doing the same work. This issue has recently been making a lot of headlines in relation to the Hollywood gender pay gap. According to 2013 earnings of the top-paid Hollywood stars, males made 2.5 times as much as females. There have been actresses such as Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, and Gwyneth Paltrow speaking out about the unfairness of them being paid so much less than their male counterparts.
Raising the minimum wage would make a significant differences, said Graves. Others have said the increase is a result in the decline of men in the labor force -- not improved conditions for women. For some women, it 's even bleaker. Black women make 64 cents and Latinas make 56 cents for every dollar earned by a white man.” (cnnmoney)

Ever wondered if Jewish and non Jewish women were targeted more than men during the Holocaust due to their gender? Six million Jewish and five million non Jewish men and women died during World War 2; four million of those eleven million being women. They played a huge role in the equality of gender during this era. This was a huge stepping stone to the advancement of the end of feminism, although there is still a slight separation of gender today. Women were treated so differently than men and sadly, in some peopleś eyes, still are.
Can it be stopped? Absolutely. In this intelligently argued and carefully researched book, Getting Even: Why Women Don 't Get Paid Like Men--And What to Do About It, Evelyn Murphy, Ph.D., examines how much women (and their families) lose over a lifetime to the wage gap, knocks down the myth that women ‘choose’ to make less, and documents the widespread discrimination that 's holding down women 's pay.” The book says that most people believe the pay gap is disappearing slowly, but this is not the case. It says that the pay gap should have ended a decade ago.
There is no country in the world without a pay gap, And according to a new report by the World Economic Forum, it’s going to take at least another 81 years for that wage gap to close.
